Saudi Arabia Dress

Saudi Arabian dress follows strictly the principles of hijab. The predominantly loose and flowing but covering garments are helpful in Saudi Arabia's desert climate. Traditionally, men usually wear an ankle-length shirt woven from wool or cotton, with a keffiyeh or a ghutra worn on the head. For rare chilly days, Saudi men wear a camel-hair cloak over the top. Women's clothes are decorated with tribal motifs, coins, sequins, metallic thread, and appliques. Women are required to wear an abaya or modest clothing when in public.

* Ghutrah Is a traditional headdress typically worn by Arab men made of a square of cloth, usually cotton, folded and wrapped in various styles around the head. It is commonly found in arid climate areas to provide protection from direct sun exposure, as well as for occasional use in protecting the mouth and eyes from blown dust and sand.

* Agal Is an Arab headdress constructed of cord which is fastened around the Ghutrah to hold it in place. The agal is usually black in colour.

* Thawb Thawb is the standard Arabic word for garment. Its an ankle-length usually with long sleeves, similar to a robe.

* Bisht Is a traditional Arabic men’s cloak usually only worn for prestige on special occasions such as weddings
